Shania Twain's inspirational new single, 'Today Is Your Day,' hits iTunes

The 45-year-old country-pop superstar's inspirational new single, "Today Is Your Day," has hit iTunes following the U.S. finale of her reality TV show "Why Not? With Shania Twain."

The new tune from the Timmins, Ont., native — the first she's written on her own in six years — is a midtempo piano ballad that finds Twain purring an ode to resilience and redemption.

The track is only the latest step in Twain's ongoing comeback.

Twain's career stalled in recent years as she recovered from the breakup of her marriage to hit-making producer Robert (Mutt) Lange.

She hasn't released an album since 2002's "Up," but in recent months the notoriously private singer has opened up with a reality TV series and a revealing autobiography, and last week announced that she would return to the stage for a two-year residency at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas beginning in December 2012.

And those who have paid attention to Twain as she's gone public with the pain of her divorce — which she says caused her to lose her singing voice — won't have much trouble interpreting the lyrics to her latest track.

The radio-ready tune finds Twain summing up her recovery in Hallmark-worthy slogans, as she sings: "When somebody throws sticks and stones/ All they can break are your bones/ And life's gonna kick you around/ And then kick you again when you're down/ But today is your day/ And nothing can stand in your way."

The song had already cracked the top 15 on iTunes' singles sales chart by Monday morning, roughly 12 hours after its release.

Twain said in a recent interview that she planned to spend the summer crafting her first new album in nearly a decade, but that she wouldn't rush it. She also pledged to "experiment" with her sound, and indicated that her next record could signal a stylistic departure.

"Today Is Your Day," however, sounds like a vintage Twain ballad, though it leans more toward pure adult-contemporary pop than country (despite the textured banjo picking underscoring the melody). The simple, soothing tune is briefly buoyed by an electrified guitar solo about midway through, but otherwise doesn't feature too many surprises.

While her TV show has documented her struggle to restore her voice, Twain's pipes sound clear and warm on the new track — though some fans are already speculating that she's been aided by some digital studio magic.

Several country and pop blogs rushed to review the new tune immediately after it hit the web, while many of her fans simply seemed glad to have the singer back. As one YouTube commentator put it: "I love this song and we all need to support Shania."

The song's release coincided with the U.S. finale of Twain's show, which featured footage of her marriage to Swiss businessman Frederic Thiebaud.

The episode will air Friday in Canada on the Oprah Winfrey Network.

Shania Twain Honored for Selling More Than 75 Million

Shania Twain at the Nightly Concerts at LP Field on Friday, June 10 in Downtown Nashville during the 2011 CMA Music Festival.

It’s been an eventful month for Shania Twain. On June 2, she received a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame (photos HERE). Last week during CMA Music Festival she signed her best-selling book, From This Moment On, for fans and announced a headline residency at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas, beginning in December 2012. Last Thursday in Nashville, she was honored for reaching worldwide sales of more than 75 million, making her the top-selling female artist in the history of country music.

Luke Lewis, chairman of Universal Music Group Nashville, paid tribute to Shania’s talent, vision, and determination during an afternoon gathering at the Citizen club in Nashville. It was a full-circle moment for Shania, who was  surrounded by several music industry execs who helped start her career, including Nashville attorney Dick Frank and producers Buddy Cannon and Norro Wilson (see photo below).

(l-r) Buddy Cannon, Shania Twain, Dick Frank and Norro Wilson.

Shania’s present and future successes were also represented by producer Nathan Chapman (who also produces Taylor Swift), who co-produced her new song, “Today Is Your Day,” and Ray Kennedy, who mastered the song.

“Today Is Your Day” premiered worldwide during the finale episode of Why Not? with Shania Twain on Sunday, June 12 on the Oprah Winfrey Network.

“The purpose of writing ‘Today Is Your Day’ in the first place was self- inspiration,” said Shania, who co-produced the song with Chapman. “I was talking to myself and saying, ‘Today is your day. You can do it!’ But the decision to even write the song and share it was a big decision for me, to find myself as a songwriter again, independently, for the very first time after all these years.

“Then the lyrics started flowing,” added Shania. “It was genuinely a melody that’s cheering me up. It became the natural theme song of the series.”

“It was exciting for me as a fan and as a producer to find out just how brilliant she really is as an artist,” said Chapman. “She sounds amazing; she sounds better than ever. She is one of those artists who can tell a story just in the tone of her voice. The song itself is so uplifting. At a time when all of her fans are rooting for her and wanting her to come back and find her voice, she is turning that back around and she is rooting for her fans by giving them a song that they can play to inspire them.”

Today’s The Day To Hear Shania Twain’s New Single “Today Is Your Day”

Shania Twain is coming back into the spotlight from pretty much every direction. She’s got a star on the Hollywood Walk Of Fame; her new reality show, Why Not? With Shania Twain, premiered on Oprah Winfrey’s OWN network; and she’ll soon head to Las Vegas for a two-year residency. Spearheading all of this news is the debut of her first single since 2005, “Today Is Your Day”. Was it worth the six-year wait?

Shania is obviously no longer working with her longtime producer Mutt Lange — you know, the same man she was married to who ended up cheating on her with her close friend whose husband Shania ended up marrying. Taking his place is Nathan Chapman, who has worked with Taylor Swift on all three of her albums.

May we paraphrase one of Twain’s biggest hits to express our reactions to this song: Man! I feel like I’m asleep. The entire song is both musically and lyrically lazy (goes the chorus: “Today is your day / And nothing can stand in your way / Today is your day / Everything’s going your way / Today, Today, Today, Today”), and it’s a huge letdown after anxiously awaiting new material from the country-pop superstar for six years.

We’re 100% pulling for Shania to make a comeback and deliver another hit single that will storm the charts. But this ain’t it. We get the relevant meaning behind this snoozy tune, but Shania is a total spitfire — remember her giddy stint on American Idol as guest judge and mentor? — and she deserves something with much more personality.

The Singles Bar: Shania Twain, "Today Is Your Day"
Posted by Katherine St Asaph on 06/13/2011 at 9:30 AM

We first heard Shania Twain’s “Today Is Your Day” in strum-circle form, a sweet acoustic ditty with all the blithe airiness that the word “ditty” suggests. From an artist best known for badassery like “That Don’t Impress Me Much” or the exclamation-point depository Up!, this was a little dispiriting. But that was just a TV performance, prone to producer-mandated jankiness. Surely the actual single would be fleshed out?

Twain’s longtime producer Mutt Lange is out, obviously, so in his place Twain recruits producer Nathan Chapman, best known for his work with Taylor Swift. It doesn’t work. “Today Is Your Day” is a singalong of jangly piano and kindergarten rhymes that comes off like the hybrid of “Oh, What A Beautiful Morning” and Daniel Powter (the “good day”/”bad day” parallel can’t be a coincidence) that no one needed.

Some percussion gets tossed into the mix later on, and a guitar solo keens through the second half, but it’s too little too late. Not even Twain’s voice–warm as always, and all the more welcome for her extended absence and vocal problems–can save things.

“Today Is Your Day” should do fine on adult-contemporary radio, of course–the format’s been kind to Twain throughout the years–and it’s hard to imagine someone truly disliking the song, shot through as it is with kindness and fluff. But it’s rather anticlimactic, like her much-adoed press conference that turned out to be just a Vegas concert series. It isn’t our job to dictate the terms of Twain’s career, but it’s as if she’s re-emerging onto the national stage with a shy smile, a blink or two and the slightest inspirational words she could muster, when she’s proven she’s capable of so much more.

POPDUST SAYS: 2 out of 5

I like the new song. I enjoy hearing her sing anything. On the own show it looked like she really did not want to record the song in the recording booth when she was with David Foster. It even looked like Fred shook his head no. So finishing this song at all was probably a struggle for her. In the next own show, she struggled with Lionel Richie until she really started finding her voice coming more forcefully and reaching higher ranges. I can't wait to see what new songs she will be bringing us.I think she was very brave to do that Oprah thing. I enjoyed watching it. Go Shania!

'Today Is Your Day' Single: Review

Victoria Meng
 
“Today Is Your Day,” Shania Twain’s most recent single, is uplifting despite its by-the-book lyrics.

As pop music reviewer Todd in the Shadows once said in his review of Katy Perry’s “Firework” and Lady Gaga’s “Born This Way,” the biggest problem with uplifting power ballads is that most of them speak in generalities and sound insincere. “Today Is Your Day” is no exception.

“You got what it takes,” Shania sings…whoever you are. “I know that you can, then you will”…can and will do what, exactly? Stale fortune-cookie clichés like “today is your day to begin” and “part of the fun is the climb” don’t usually help anyone, and they just make this song sound even more generic than it actually is.

Basically, the lyrics of this song are trying to convince you that you’re unique and capable, but the song is also applying the same lines to everyone else regardless of who they are; therefore, it doesn’t sound sincere. It’s like that scene in Monty Python and the Life of Brian, where Brian Blessed tells a crowd, “You’re all individuals!” so almost everyone in the crowd starts shouting, “Yes! We’re all individuals!” at exactly the same time.

“Today Is Your Day” might be a “comfort” song, but it’s blatantly a commercial, marketable comfort song. Tori Amos, Fiona Apple, Regina Spektor, and the Grateful Dead are just a few examples of artists who’ve written power ballads with far more personal and/or creative lines.

Still, a nice tune can’t hurt. If “Today Is Your Day” has sub-par lyrics, at least the music sounds pleasant. Soft-piano tunes with softer guitar music combine with Shania’s gentle vocals to create a very soothing song.

In other words, the extent to which you enjoy this song will depend on how well you can stomach condescending lyrics.

'Today' is not Shania Twain's comeback day

By Sean Daly, Times Pop Music Critic
Posted: Jun 21, 2011 03:54 PM

It shouldn't be tough rooting for Shania Twain these days. Embarking on a comeback after a six-year radio silence — and a nasty tabloid fracas — the Canadian born Eilleen Regina Edwards was raised in an abusive household. When she was 22, her parents were killed in a car accident, leaving her in charge of three sibs. She bootstrapped herself into the best-selling female country artist of all time with punctuation-happy hits like Man! I Feel Like a Woman! and (If You're Not in It for Love) I'm Outta Here!.

And then her husband, super-producer Robert "Mutt" Lange, ditched her for her assistant/best friend. So Shania went and hooked up with the assistant/best friend's ex. Down with dudes! Up with divas! Huzzah!

With a whole lot to say, the 45-year-old just published a best-selling tell-all, From This Moment On. She taped a reality show for Oprah's OWN network. And she hooked up with David Foster — a schmaltzmeister who's usually money in the bank — to cut new single Today Is Your Day.

But that's where rooting for Shania Twain gets a lil' tricky.

She didn't have to be brilliant to regain her throne. In fact, she didn't even have to be all that good. It's not like Don't Be Stupid (You Know I Love You) was a sterling piece of songcraft.

But wow, Today Is Your Day, her first new piece of music in a long time, is a shocking stinkeroo every which way. It truly makes for uncomfortable listening, not just because it sounds as if she's singing out of the side of her mouth a la James Cagney, but because this saccharine piece of tripe reinforces all those skeptics who forever insisted that Mutt Lange, who also helmed iconic albums for Def Leppard and AC/DC, was the sole key to his ex-wife's robust sonic success.

Uh, they might've been right.

Shania sounds totally adrift on the self-penned Hallmarkian claptrap of Today Is Your Day ("Don't expect more or less / Just go out and give it your best" — gack!), and her unsure warbling of the incessant torrent of tired cliches plays like a rough first take. The production is thin, cloying, self-help foofaraw, the kind of generic fake-smile junk you might hear at a second-rate theme-park kiddie show. Seriously, Barney the Dinosaur would dry-heave at this thing.

When Lange produced Def Leppard and AC/DC and, ultimately, his own wife, he didn't create templates for songs but personas. With Shania, he gave her a cape and red boots; shy and quiet in private, she became superwoman in public. But now, without Lange, she's stripped bare and she's asking us, six weird years later, to love the real Shania Twain. Yikes. If Today Is Your Day is a sign of things to come, you might want to hold your breath on that comeback.

Shania Twain Shows Strength in New ‘Today Is Your Day’ Video

While she sings the opening verses of the song, Twain proves she is a strong woman in more ways than one, as personal footage of her skydiving and rock climbing play. Always known for one to have a good time, Twain also shows a bit of her silly side as she sings the song lakeside and poses next to a vehicle sporting her beautiful face.

Twain is also featured in her element: the recording studio, where she lays the track down for the powerful and inspiring song. The video includes many behind-the-scenes and personal clips of the singer away from the spotlight, including her training with a Lipizzaner Stallion and special moments with her new hubby, Frederic Thiebaud.

The new single has become an anthem for country music fans since its release. Fans can see Twain perform the song live starting in December 2012 when she begins a series of performances at Ceasars Palace in Las Vegas.

HATE MAIL: Shania lovers, what took you so long?

At first, the response to my story on Shania Twain's crummy new song (READ) was nothin' but agreement. I felt kinda bad actually. Like a bully or something. So I was rather relieved when Team Shania finally showed up in my mailbox...

Did you watch Shania's mini-doc on OWN? She's been through some traumatizing stuff. Personally, I liked the new song. Why no review on Keith Urban's concert last Saturday night? Are you afraid you wouldn't be able to say anything negative? Ever since you compared John Legend's concert of, what 2,000 people, to the Eagles concert of 12,000 people, I've thought that you were a narrow-minded idiot.
Today you confirmed it.

Single Review: Shania Twain, “Today is Your Day”

by Kevin John Coyne

June 17, 2011

Shania Twain returns with her first single in six years, and it’s kind of a beautiful mess.

Kind of beautiful because it’s the most nakedly sincere she’s been on record, especially as a vocalist.

Kind of a mess because it sounds like a fan-made pop remix of a damn good country song.

It’s jarring to listen to the first couple of times, especially if you heard one of the far more sonically pleasing acoustic versions on her remarkably powerful reality show.

But it’s not the clunky arrangement that’s so jarring, but rather the pervasive sense of melancholy and self-doubt that seeped into the final version, going against the song’s lyric in particular and Twain’s rah-rah, positive thinking confidence that defined her signature work.

I don’t think that that Shania’s coming back, but as good as those classic records are, they’re not nearly as interesting as the pathos she’s displaying these days.  She just has to find a better co-producer to capture it on record.

Written by Shania Twain

I don't expect anything big from this song as far as the charts are concerned.  Its just a song that Shania wrote and cheered her up.  I think that this song along singing with Lional Richie helped her regain her singing voice.  Shania is going to be recording all summer on her new album and Shania going to performing on stage again.  This is more of a warm up single, not a comeback single.

Shania Twain, ‘Today Is Your Day’ – Lyrics Uncovered

Twain was writing along her journey, and as her confidence began to build a little with each episode she began to reconsider releasing the track. “It became a bit of a cheerleader. Just an optimistic arm around my shoulder saying ‘You can do this,’” she reveals.

The song begins, “You got what it takes you can win / Today is your day to begin / Don’t give up here, don’t you quit / The moment is now, this is it.”

“That song was me living what I was preaching to myself, literally every day,” the singer adds. Recording with Lionel Richie was something else Twain would not have let happen before the series began this spring. “I’m like, ‘There’s no way I can do that, I’m way too insecure vocally,’ to sing in front of another celebrity.” However, fans watched as Richie pulled Twain out of her shell and inspired a beautiful performance. Twain admits she was terrified throughout the whole ordeal.”It was quite challenging filming the series,” she says. “I did a lot of things that were uncomfortable and embarrassing, and I wanted to stick to it.”

“Today is your day / And nothing can stand in your way / Today is your day / Everything’s goin’ your way,” Twain sings.

Fans will have to wait until 2012 to see the singer perform live, as she’s beginning a residency in Las Vegas at that time, though Twain’s name continues to be batted around as a replacement for Jennifer Lopez on ‘American Idol’ should Lopez decide not to return next season. All of these commitments are sure to bring new stress to Twain’s life, and perhaps even sour her mood. At least now she has a quick pick-me-up to call upon: “When I wanna’ cheer myself up I just put that song on.”

Can't say i've heard it over here at all. There again I don't really listen to country stations over here as to be honest there aren't many. Maybe with a bit of a dance beat on it as a remix there could be some crossover appeal here. I think there is still a market for her music here if they perhaps aim it at an older fanbase. I'm not sure how loyal her fans are over here after being away so long, people seem very fickle and move onto other music after a while. I don't think i've even met a fellow Shania fan over here lol We can't be all keeping our heads down.smile

Today Is Your Day! Well a good song, Yet she never promoted it at all, No offence the video could have been made some what better. I wonder will she sing her next single and promote it ? Remember Shania in todays music you have to promote your songs and make videos. The reasons well ? Youtube and Facebook are huge and to promote you have to put some effort. Lets hope you do that cause your still pretty and still got the awesome voice.
